Default Decent Marinas

Is the forum the right place on which to report on marinas - good and bad ? I have experienced some poor ones, but Sebana Cove, apart from being off the beaten track, is brilliant - much better than their rather average website suggests.

ps Did I tell you, after much searching I found my steel yacht, via yachtworld.com . It was called Gillie Potter but is now Pathfinder. Masses of relatively small things to put right (caveat emptor, even with a professional survey)but when I have done the several weeks work, she will be a lovely yacht.

Hi John, If several weeks work is all that your new aquisition requires, you have bought well indeed. Congratulations and good luck with Pathfinder. David

Congratulations Pathfinder!

Enjoy the showers at Sebana Cove - you won't find better in SE Asia!

As for electronics, JeanneP is spot on. There's a West Marine representitive within walking distance from Sim Lim Tower in Singapore.

And we found S'pore easiest to "do" from the anchorage by the causeway at Johor Baru. Tie your dinghy at the police dock and take the bus into the city - much easier & cheaper than taking the Sebana ferry.

Hi Pathfinder (just found your boat name!)

I enjoyed Sebana Cove as well and would return there if ever going back 'eastways'.

The new marina in Penang is great ... right in the center of Chinatown .. but only stay there if you can get a berth on the northern side. The southern side is close to the cross channel ferries and some boats have broken their mooring lines due to the swell kicked up by the ferries.

In Langkawi my favorite is Telaga Harbour. It's remote location makes for better scenery and peace and quiet. The Royal Langkawi Yacht Club is a bit like the one in Penang .. lots of swell and it's more expensive than Telaga.

Don't know about Boat Lagoon yet .. going in there tomorrow.

Hope this helps,

Forgot to mention ...

The Admiral Marina at Port Dickson is also excellent. Watch out for the shallow spots SW of the entrance so don't cut the corner too close!
